“Man who catch fly with chopsticks accomplish anything.”
The movie is a cultural landmark, kicking off an avalanche of films and a late-in-life TV series.
For impressionable dudes like myself, who were teenagers when it hit theaters, it introduced us to Elisabeth Shue (“How you doin?”) and made us think we were one crane kick away from nirvana.
My enduring memory of the film is seeing a fellow Tumwater Middle School kid break his leg after attempting said kick while not realizing the door in front of him didn’t 100% open.
Sweep up all the pieces of his leg, Johnny.
